Bumble Bee with Pollen Baskets

Kenosha Wisconsin
A bumblebee, also written bumble bee, is any member of the bee genus Bombus, in the family Apidae. It is the only extant genus in the tribe Bombini, though a few extinct related genera (e.g., Calyptapis) are known from fossils. Over 250 species are known,[1] found primarily in higher latitudes or at higher altitude in the Northern Hemisphere, although they also occur in South America; however, a few lowland tropical species are known. European bumblebees have been introduced to New Zealand and Tasmania.
